With the foundational knowledge of fraud and financial crime investigation from the first course (FSCT 9000), in this course students are exposed to forensic accounting, data mining and process mapping tools and techniques. These forensic methods begin to show students how to detect and report financial information related to an investigation. Students will also use them to discover and report on the risk exposure of the fraud and financial crime being investigated. The case studies presented in the first course will be reviewed and advanced using these new methods learned in this course. This will continue to demonstrate how fraud and financial crime investigations progress from initial incident to resolution. The evidence obtained from forensic tools and techniques learned during this course are then added into the student’s investigation report initiated during the first course. Students are then required to review the current state of their investigation case studies to determine if they have sufficient factual basis to proceed or if further review of their initial case theory is required.
